What to look out for
Anonymity: The Undergraduate Awards prides itself on awarding academic work without bias and the entire judging process is anonymous. It is very important that your submission does not include your name, student number, or your institution/lecturer's name anywhere.

The Abstract should be between 100-300 words. Your abstract is the first thing judges will read so please make sure it is a good overview of your work.

Please read more about the eligibility criteria on the Submission Guide web page our website before you submit.

Good luck!
